"That’s an area we obviously need to improve. But I take it personal. I’ve got to do a better job. It starts with me and like I said, there’s no way to sugarcoat it. But there are only so many options. We will continue to look at those moving forward."
A loss is a loss, but Arians saw plenty of positives to build on in Cardinals' 27-24 loss to Rams.
"You never accept losing, but there are some very good things and some very correctable things," he said. "I think disappointed? Yes. Discouraged? Not at all, would be the way we describe where we’re at right now.
"I thought Carson did a nice job and it was nice to see a real NFL quarterback out there spinning the rock," Keim said, referring to last year's mess at the position.
With four TDs midway through the third quarter, Philip Rivers was having quite a game for the Chargers in their season-opener vs. the Texans. Then Houston woke up and scored 24 unanswered points for the win.
The Eagles rolled up 445 yards to win, 33-27, in Chip Kelly's NFL coaching debut. Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was a bit rusty, throwing two interceptions, but he racked up 329 yards in the air and two TD in the game.
The read option became the NFL's hottest new weapon during the 2012 season with Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson all having great success using it. So how can defenses try to stop it in 2013?
